Re: forge weapons

I'm not really good with what we currently have there either (and it has been a new feature in ED3 and is mainly meant to balance Avoid Blow with Parry, but messes with weapon balance), but we've had very little negative feedback on that (like, 4 people, and that includes me and now you). It might ...

Re: Shield Charge

That's what I get for being so literal. Forgetting that the Shield effectively becomes a weapon with Shield Charge, thus Second Weapon could be used in conjunction. That leads to some awesome flexibility! Thanks!!! Of course damage is important, this is more of a eternal mental exercise. My current ...

Re: Shield Charge

All good ideas, especially adding Ranks to the Talent counting twice. :) In the end, as one might expect, 2 Weapons is going to do more damage. The extra attack alone puts them ahead, before the weapon stats are brought to bear. However, the Shield Charge eventually does hefty damage (how many non-T...

Re: Shield Charge

True... but not my point. Those would also empower a Buckler the same as a Body shield (Actually, Storm Shield also creates the shield out of the air). I'm weighing the benefits between a Shield Warrior and a 2 Weapon Warrior. Shield Charge and Second Weapon being the obvious key Talents in question...

Re: Shield Charge

Thanks Arma. So, like Down Strike or Surprise Strike, it changes your damage when triggered by the situation. Unlike those Talents, Shield Charge causes the situation to occur where you get to use it. Hence the confusion. It's too bad you don't add something from the Shield being used to the damage....

Re: selling loot

If you have a Weaponsmith in the party, refrain from allowing Knowledge skills from knowing how much things cost. That's what the Evaluate Talent is for (and it's a Discipline Talent for them). Instead, let the Knowledge skill know what to look for (this creature has feathers that are worth money) a...

Shield Charge

How exactly do you use this Talent? Spend a Free Action to make an attack with your Shield (rolling Melee Weapons?) Can you still use your Standard Action to attack with your weapon? (This would seem to balance fairly well with Second Weapon) Or are you spending a Free Action and 1 Strain to modify ...
